正当中国国内科技公司努力争抢银行业务,纷纷推出各种在线、无卡化、类似信用卡业务的消费信贷产品时,美国苹果公司却反其道而行之,推出了实实在在的信用卡。对,能揣在裤兜里的那种。

苹果公司曾在发布会上称,这张信用卡是 ” 这50 年来信用卡消费体验最重大的变化“。

The company first announced the Apple Card in March, promising “the most significant change in the credit card experience in 50 years.” The card, which officially became available to all US customers on Tuesday, is issued through Goldman Sach ( GS ) and runs on Mastercard’s network. It is only available to iPhone users and built into the Apple Wallet app.

苹果公司于今年 3 月首次推出 Apple Card,承诺 ” 这将是 50 年来信用卡消费体验中最重大的变化 “。这张信用卡于本周二正式面向所有美国客户发行,它通过高盛集团发行,并在万事达的网络上运行。只有 iPhone 用户可以使用它,并内置在苹果钱包应用程序中。

Physically, the credit card has the classic Apple look. It’s white, made of titanium and generally has a minimalist design. On the card, you’ll see an Apple logo, but no credit card numbers.

从外观上看,这张信用卡具有经典苹果产品的外观。它是白色的,由钛金属制成,总体设计非常简约。在卡上,你会看到一个苹果的标志,但没有信用卡卡号。

不过,苹果的这张信用卡,可不能随随便便放钱夹或裤兜里

申领苹果信用卡的用户还没摸到这张珍贵的信用卡,就被苹果公司一份信用卡使用说明给惊到了。

根据使用说明,把苹果信用卡放在皮质钱夹或牛仔裤口袋,可能导致 “永久变色(permanent discoloration)”。而把苹果信用卡与其他信用卡放在一起,更是会导致其 “刮花损坏(scratch and damage)”,引发网友一阵嘲笑吐槽。

Months after it was first announced, Apple this week officially launched the new project, offering both a digital version integrated with its Wallet app, as well as a physical card that can be swiped.

(在新闻发布会上)首次宣布(将发行)该信用卡的几个月后,苹果公司本周正式推出了这个信用卡新项目,它既提供了与钱包应用程序集成的数字版本,也提供了可以刷卡的实体卡。

Though the card is constructed from titanium, Apple has posted a notice for users online listing the many ways the card might be damaged. Fabrics, hard surfaces, other cards, magnets, improper cleaning: there ’ s apparently not much that won ’ t destroy Apple ’ s new credit card.

尽管这张卡是钛金属材质的,但苹果公司已经在网上发布了一份通告,告诉用户这张卡可能会通过多种途径遭到损坏。布料、坚硬的表面、其他卡片、磁铁、不恰当的清洁:显然没有什么东西不会毁掉苹果这张新的信用卡。

The company suggests storing the card in “a wallet, pocket, or bag made of soft materials,” but rules out fabrics like denim and leather, as they “might cause permanent discoloration that will not wash off” – in other words, denim jeans and leather wallets are off the table.

苹果公司建议将信用卡放在 ” 钱包、口袋或软质材料制成的包里 “,但将牛仔布和皮革面料排除在外,因为它们 ” 可能会导致永久性变色,无法洗掉 ” ——换句话说,牛仔裤和皮夹是绝对不能用来存放苹果信用卡的。

于是,网友们开启了疯狂的吐槽模式

May your credit card never touch your jeans.

愿你的信用卡永远别碰到你的牛仔裤。

还有网友开玩笑说,苹果马上就会推出一系列信用卡周边,来保护这张娇贵的卡片。

Apple: would you like a $250 AppleCare plan for your credit card to protect it from denim and leather damage?

苹果:您想为您的信用卡购买 250 美元的 AppleCare 保修计划,来保护它免受牛仔裤和皮夹的损坏吗 ?

Everyone:

不过,估计中国的苹果用户想要体验下苹果信用卡带来的,这 50 年来变化最大的信用卡消费体验,还不太可能,不过可以庆幸的是,能省下不少钱。
